Kramnik-Karjakin
(Photo taken from chess-news.ru)

The first game of the final was played yesterday and it was a very interesting one indeed! Kramnik sacrificed a Q for a R and minor piece, got a passed pawn and very active piece play. Then forced Black to give up the R for a passed pawn and after getting two rooks vs Queen, converted it as the advantage was large.
